ddub is right 20 on the top and 38 on the bottom. The uppers ranged from 17 to 20 (17 is rare I have only seen them in 1979 Lilwhip)dual roller chains. 1979 Lilwhip with para rail 17 340 Whip used18 tops 400 Rangewhip/Sting used 18 or 19 tops(mostly 19's) 440 Whip used 19 tops Sting and TKs used 20 tops
That was the average that the sleds arrived at the dealers but changes to the average were not uncommon.

Thanks for the informations guys... I noticed that currently, only the top gear is still in place, but I haven't count how many teeth it had. I will check with the owener of the scorpion as he have a lot of spare parts (mostly doo's ) but if we can't find one, then I'll let you know ddub
Does anyone could now give me track lenght, for my TK 440 1980 ? Also, any tips on which glue to une to repair cracks in belly pan ?
118.44 is the length of the track in the TK's and Whips. If you have a pararail and a 16" track in your TK, one out of a whip will interchange. If you have a pararail with a 15" track (not real common) The track from a 77-78 Range Whip / Range Whip Sting "should" interchange.
If it is a cleated track, it will be 16". Some John Deere tracks will interchange.
Also, any tips on which glue to une to repair cracks in belly pan ? thanks
We have had success using a heavy duty soldering gun and plastic welding them. Just make sure your 'filler" material is compatible. We use parts of a junk belly pan. There are glues that will work, but they need some buildup behind it to work. You can't just butt them together like with super glue
